It’s hard to believe that the end of the school year is near. The 6th and 7th grade lunch bunch groups had our final meetings of the year yesterday.
The seventh graders talked about James Howe’s The Misfits. We had a really good discussion about what it means to be a misfit, how you find your niche, and comparing the environment at the school in the book with our school.
The sixth graders did a Caudill Round Table. Everyone in the group read at least one of the books from the 2008 Caudill list and reviewed it for the group. After hearing the reviews there are several books I am more excited about reading than from just looking at the cover on the shelf. (I know, I know I am not supposed to judge a book by its cover but it is really hard not to sometimes.)
The book clubs really went well this year.
I am anxious to see what kinds of discussions we have using this blog.
